The Baiyun Taoist Temple (Baiyun guan) was ordered to be built by the magistrate of Gansu Province in 1837 (Qing Dynasty) to commemorate the legendary immortal Lu Dongbin, one of the eight Taoist immortals. Nowadays the temple remains a place of active worship and the monks here still mill about in their Taoist clothing and styled hairstyles (in a sort of bun).
On arriving at the temple you will be confronted by an archway, in front of the main gate, that bears four Chinese characters: "Sheng Yun De Lu". The inscription, literally "the road to obtaining promotion to the clouds", is an allusion to Lu's success in reaching immortalhood after years of asceticism. Entering the main gate you will be confronted by a statue of Lu and another of the Jade Emperor (the highest ruler in the Taoist hierarchy).
Address: Binghe lu (the middle section).
